intraparty politics going on in america is in the south carolina republican party. nikki haley up for re-election in 2014, lindsay gray laey grah. nikki haley has to make a decision. she may make conservatives mad if she doesn't do tim scott but if she doesn't do him and do a caretaker, chris, all the conservative action can be in that primary and maybe she doesn't get a conservative primary challenge. a lot of moving parts here. >> maybe lindsay gray lamb doesn't either. kelly, i don't want to leave the fiscal cliff out here. talk about a former senator who is making a lot of noise on it alan simpson, from wyoming. here what happens he had to say on the "today" show about who knows what about the fiscal cliff and the budget negotiations. >> these guys if you gave half of them -- gave 90% of them a profit and loss statement in one hand and a balance sheet in the other they wouldn't know how to read it. >> so, alan simpson not making himself the most popular among former colleagues. what is your sense? how well do the members who are going to be voting on the stuff understand, both what's
and direction, and i think that's a good thing for america, and as i say, i look at her tenure at secretary of state, but the thing that stands out for me is the fact that she took after a very tough election the obligation of being on the president's team and being part of trying to help the country, and that's what's the best about politics, and i think hillary clinton represents that. it was a sacrifice to leave the senate. some people would say that you have a lot more freedom in the senate, and it's obviously a lot easier life than being secretary of state. she did it for the country, and i think that's remarkable and should still be admired and thanked by the american people. >> well, we have to leave it there. thank you very much, bill daley. good to see you again. >> happy holidays. >> you too. >>> what to do about syria? the rebel with ties to al qaeda and the threat of chemical weapons. general barry mcafterry joining me next. >>> plus, the sudden and shock death of lat everybody music star jenni rivera still ahead. new trident layers juicy berry + tangy tangerine is a thrilling,
america? >> actually, look, i am surprised. been around the block just a couple times. i've seen different things in the past, but this is very serious business, and apparently some members of congress just don't get it. the -- you can call it whatever you want to call it, but certainly fiscal is in front of it and it's not good. taxes going up for all americans, not a good thing. significant, possibly devastating budget cuts coming down to certainly state and local governments, not a good thing. and so this seemingly bad game of chicken, you know, this is not some schoolyard game here. this is about people's lives, it's about their livelihoods, it's about the future of cities, it's about programs that need the dollars to provide services that the citizens want and expect is lack of doing your job. and so congress, it seems to me, should be flying, literally, back into session to get things done. the marketplace will not reward this inactivity, but more importantly, the psychological confidence that citizens and the business community should have about the ability of congress and washingto
the smartest person in the room. we immediate somebody to say all right, america, we need to deal with revenues. that's the bad news. we immediate to deal with the medicare fiscal cliff or you are not going on get your medical bills paid. >> remembering an american original. >> iraqis are dumb muff to attack her going to pay a terrible price. >> nicknamed stormin' norman for his ledgendary temper. he died thursday due to complications from pneumonia. >>> it is a year comes to a close, we look back at the amr moments that left us starstruck and speechless in 2012. >>> good day. i'm luke russert. live in washington, d.c. in for andrea this afternoon is the calm before the economic storm white house officials and congressional leaders have kept quiet. ahead of the pivotal round table discussions we all hope can produce some kind of plan to prevent a fiscal cliff dive in the new year. you guessed it. another day without a deal means more losses on wall street. look at those numbers will. 68 down for the dow. joining for the daily fix, nbc white house correspondent peter alexander. nbc's kelly o'don
who have put their lives at risk for america. >> how important is it for hillary clinton to actually testify before these committees? she's out sick, we're told. is her absence could affect getting this thing right? >> well, i think the secretary of state should testify. this is a catastrophic event where a united states ambassador was killed. clearly there were systemic failures. they identified senior leadership failures. it has to be of major consequence to the people who made those bad decisions, and in the transformation process of the state department, and the only one that could reinforce that message, talk about what happened, talk about the decision making, i think, is the secretary of state, so i wish her well. i hope she recovers soon and has a good and quick recovery for whatever is ailing here, and that i do believe she should come up and testify. again, because the magnitude of this is huge and significant because we have some 270 other posts out around the world where these people are have signed up to do america's work in the depp low mattic mission, and they deserve
to latin america or doesn't get out of his country alive that's another question. the meeting between hillary clinton and the russians sends a signal to some of his insiders, some of the defense officials, the military, that perhaps defection might be a safer option. i want to ask you about the chemical weapons. as the rebels gain ground there has been a concern y, you saw leon panetta warning assad should not use his chemical weapons or else. what is the military option? the caution that i'm hearing and you know far better than i as a former defense secretary, we don't really short of ground troops, 75,000 ground troops, we don't have a military option. you can't take a cruise missile and go after those depots without risking contamination. >> there are two issues involved with chemical weapons. number one, whether assad himself would choose to use sarin gas, mustard gas or other chemical or biological agent to try to defeat the rebel forces. that's threat number one. threat number two would be if the rebel forces take over the country, there are elements in the rebel forces -- the u
